    So long as producing farmers are exploited it will not happen

    With good land, good irrigiation system, good climate and good people, Sri Lanka should be country exporting quality agriculatural produces. Unfortunately, it has to import the very essential vegetables. Something shall and must be done.

    Robbing Paul to pay Peter.

    If the govt was genuinely concerned about its voters it should pay subsidy to the farmers and make sure the consumers don't get affected.

    And they are grumbling about the high hotel rates. The govt. has started the trend(power tariffs etc..)

    Are we self sufficient in locally produced bonions or is it just to harass the consumer some more?

    This tax will never taken off even in off season henceforth like the Fuel Adjustment charge levied even when hydro power reservoirs are spilling.
